A Peek At Peter Jackson’s Insane Movie Prop Collection (Video)
  |  @   |  

Any movie fan would love to put together an impressive collection of authentic movie props. Unfortunately, most can’t afford such a hobby. The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, and The Hobbit director Peter Jackson is not one of those people.

Jackson has a massive movie prop collection. So many, in fact, that the area he keeps them in looks more like a museum than a personal collection. Mythbusters star Adam Savage was able to hang out with Jackson and take a tour of this unbelievable collection for the YouTube channel Tested. Unfortunately, while we do get lots of peeks at the amazing props Jackson owns, most of the video focuses on only one. I’m hoping this is simply the first in a series of videos, because I sure would like to see a lot more of this collection. But for now, we have the video you can see below.

So yeah, new items to add to the old bucket list: First, become friends with Peter Jackson. This could be tricky, but I have hope. Second, hang out with new friend Peter Jackson. Three, dance.

And no, you’re not alone. I totally thought that was a prop at 3:48.


Earlier this year, Adam Savage visited Peter Jackson in his cave–his world-class collection of props, costumes, and cinema artifacts that inspired him as a young filmmaker and continue to inspire him. Adam and Peter examine a prop you may recognize: the faceplate for the Hal 9000 computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
